Re: GoldWave 6.4x won't install on AMD A8-7600 Processor system

You can contact Chris (GoldWave's developer) using this form and he will get back to you via email. (He doesn't seem to visit the user forum very often.)

If you can give him any specific error messages or explain exactly what's happening, that will probably help...

Re: Goldwave 6.41 Unlicensed version

Thanks for your input DougDbug but you are totally incorrect. AC3 is standard on DVDs & Blu-Ray but its not supported by Windows Media Player and it's not mentioned at all in the GoldWave FAQ . If someone can please tell me what versions of FFmpeg/Libav decoders are compatible with Goldwave 6.41 I'...

Re: Goldwave 6.41 Unlicensed version

I'm pretty sure AC3 support is NOT built-into GoldWave and I don't think it's built-into Windows either so if it opens at all it's using some unknown 3rd-part party CODEC. I hate to mention this on the GoldWave forum, but... Audacity with the optional FFmpeg import/export library can handle most aud...

Re: why g6.36 x64 can't open this mp3 whereas g5.70 x32 can

The good news is, I got the file. Apparently, GoFile doesn't like Internet Explorer. Google Chrome worked. The "bad news" is, the file opened fine with GoldWave 6.41 running on Windows 10. ----------------------------------------------------------- MP3 Diags found a couple of potential problems: Fra...

Re: Safe download and install of LAME

What version of GoldWave? What version of Windows? If you are running the current version of GoldWave, LAME is included and installed automatically. On older versions GoldWave would automatically download it from "somewhere" on the Internet, but there is a possibility that it's been moved or deleted...

here is an example : https://gofile.io/?c=85oQYK I'm not getting anything except something going-around in circles like it's downloading, for a looooong time. Maybe it's not really an MP3. You can check the file-format details with MediaInfo or MediaInfo Online if you don't want to install it on yo...

Re: how to improve a track which have seperate channels ?

The curious thing is the new wav file got the SAME file size than the original ! what a strange thing ! Yeah... CDs are 16-bits, 44.1kHz, 2-channels. If you know there are 8 bits in a byte, and if you know 44.1 kHz means 44,100 samples per second, you can make an easy calculation: File size in byte...

Re: how to improve a track which have seperate channels ?

In this track, the left channel offer the voice, and the right one the instrumental music ! Efect -> Stereo -> Channel Mixer allows you to blend the left & right channels in any proportion, all they way down to mono (two identical channels) if you wish. (Or, you can reverse the left & right channel...

Re: Recording Device Mono Selection

Since nobody has replied I'll guess it's related to the hardware & drivers. (I don't see that option either.) You normally get both channels mixed together if you're recording from a stereo source. And, if you are recording from a multi-channel interface you may only get channels 1 & 2 as left & rig...

Re: Volume Matching

In general, dynamic compression reduces the dynamic range (AKS dynamic contrast) by making the loud parts quieter and/or the quiet parts louder. That does make everything trend toward the same loudness. It's most-often used with make-up gain to make "everything louder". If you're shooting for a cert...

Re: Volume Matching

I'm not sure why the Volume Matching effect isn't working better for you, but there are a couple of tricky things about volume matching. The best way is usually by ear - 1. Maximize Volume on all of the tracks. 2. Listen to all of the tracks and if they are not equally loud after Maximizing, choose ...

Re: Big MP3 file

You're right, the file should be smaller. You might try saving with a different name just to make sure you are saving/creating a new file.

The bitrate in kpbs is kilobits per second. There are 8-bits in a byte so (ignoring any embedded artwork/metadata) I get: (96k/8) x 300 seconds = 3.6MB.

but I was trying to ask about VideoMeld!
Sorry, I don't have VideoMeld.

There is a playback speed control at the upper-right of the Control Window (Tool -> Control).
